Vacationers, you have hit upon a real gem. This home is tucked away on a beautiful, serene property and has that "get-away-from-it-all" feel to it, but yet is close enough to amenities, and various outdoor recreational activities.
The home is lovely inside and out, and has a historic feel to it, but with all contemporary conveniences. It is well maintained but all with a homey feel.
Personally, I have to put an extra word in for the sun room -- I had to be dragged out of there. The room, and the property in general is a perfect spot for writers or artists of any sorts.
As we visited the property in the summer, we were able to enjoy the inviting pool, which is also kept in impeccable condition.
And it was a pleasure to interact with the owner! Janice is responsible, and so helpful and cordial.
Enjoy your vacation!
This house feels very secluded and is surrounded by trees, which makes it very shady and perfect for those of us with very fair skin. The pool is lovely and we spent most of our days swimming and sitting by the pool. The house itself is extremely large and comfortable and Janice is just about the easiest person with whom to deal that I've ever "met." We were a little worried about the distance to Lenox, but there is a back way that avoids Pittsfield and it was easy to go back and forth at night for dinner, Shakespeare + Co, Tanglewood, etc.
We had a great time at Janice's house. I went with my children, au pair and parents. It is really 4 bedrooms because the library downstairs is a separate room with a bed. The house is clean and has a nice atmosphere and plenty of amenities. The location is great for all Berkshire activities. There is a wonderful area for a campfire right on property too! We would definitely stay there again.
We had a wonderful time at this rental. Its location is great. The house is in the middle of woods with total privacy and nature all around, yet it is only 10 min drive to all the major stores and 20-30 min drive to all the major attractions in the area. The place has fantastic climate, we were there in the middle of a heat wave, yet we did not use airconditioning a single time because the house stays very cool all day long and there is a constant cool breeze there, so mornings and evenings it is very cool even outside. There is an excellent gourmet store, Guido's, about 15 min away where one can get fresh fish and meats for grilling. Very high quality. The owner, Janice, is absolutely wonderful--very pleasant and accommodating, we had the use of internet and her netflix account. The deposit was returned within 3 days of our departure. The house is nicely furnished and fully equipped. The bed in Masterbedroom is super comfortable. The pool is very clean and nice. It is automatically heated in the morning until 11 am. After 2pm the yard and pool are mostly in the shadow of the trees, so it is not for those who like suntanning all day long. Excellent for bird lovers. Hummingbirds come to feed all day long.
Dalton is a quaint Central Berkshire Town that is only 30 minutes to Tanglewood and Jacobs Pillow and lacks the summer/fall tourist traffic of the Southern Berkshire Area.
The location is convenient with 10 minute access to grocery stores, Walmart and the Berkshire shopping mall makes it unique. If peace and tranquility are one of your vacation objectives, then this is the home for you!!
A Birdwatchers Paradise...Hikers explore the woods on and behind the property...Fishing & Boating 2 miles past the house on Hinsdales Lake Ashmere...Downhill or Crosscountry Skiing at Jimminy Peak or Brodi Mountain 20 minutes away...Fall Foliage Color overload right at the property!!
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall this vacation property offers year round possibilities!!!
